Tabbed browsing has allowed me to cut it down to literally about 15-20 minutes. It takes some getting used to when you start, but once you get used to it almost everyone loves it.
      I'm not quite sure how I can understand that. I mean, what's the difference between selecting a tab at the top of your screen (in FireFox) vs. clicking a IE window from your taskbar?

        1. Saves on RAM

        2. Not cluttered in with all your other open apps and/or documents that might also be in the taskbar

        3. Other advantages to tabs like "Close all other tabs", "Reload all tabs" etc (more if you have tabbed browsing extensions installed)

          Well I have a bookmark folder called "Startup" which I simply middle click when I first start the browser, which instantly opens all the forums, forum categories, and sites I regularly attend in tabs and I then go through each forum and open each thread in a new tab, and then I go back and blow through each thread.

            I'd steer clear of that, it isn't on microsoft's website, chances are it is a virus.

            Edit: It seems someone deleted the post I replied to. If the poster did it, then I must have been right. If a staff member did it, thank for keeping that virus off people's computers.

              Its amazing for forums. I do a search for new posts, ctrl click on the threads i want, and each thread loads in a new tab in the background. Once I have selected all my threads, I read each tab and close it when I am done.

                Yeah, I love doing that. Except during that short time on these forums where 90% of them would give me a 404

                  I don't see what's wrong with Google putting little things like that in their toolbar for different holidays; it makes it fun. I tend to agree with those who say it's cute - but even for everyone else, can't you live with the little image for a few days? It's not that big of a deal.

                    The hearts are so out of place, however, that it throws off the rest of the toolbars, which are heart-less or otherwise undecorated.

                      Cripes. I never knew I was gonna be opening up such a can of worms with this topic. Guess what though? We're not alone:

                      One of the more interesting replies at the BroadbandReports.com forum says:

                      There seems to be something real fishy about the new Google Toolbar with the VD theme. Mine did not change so I went and downloaded the new one because I thought it was cute.

                      Problems began after I installed it. My internet connection was just fine UNTIL I rebooted. I could not get on the internet after that. I kept getting a message that it couldn't find the server. If I clicked on my OE I could connect. If I went to my network connections and clicked on my normal connection I could connect.

                      I did a System Restore, and it took me back to the old Google version 2.0.106. I was able to connect with no problem the way I normally do by clicking on Internet Explorer. I'm sticking with my old version.
                      Continuing on...

                      * Most people at WebmasterWorld poo-pooed the security and privacy risk, but at least a couple of people get it.
                      * At least one person here gets it

                      Those are the three most notable finds when you Google for discussions on this anyway. I ran across any dozens of chick blogs with entries along the lines of "Google hearts are soooo CUTE!" I'm soooo glad they think so, while standing my ground against anyone who thinks it's just fine for Google to use their software to feed content to everyone's computer without permission or warning.

                      It isn't that I can't toddle. It's that I can't guess I'll toddle."

                        How do you do this?

                          In Firebird, type "about:config" in the URL bar (without the quotes though )

                          Where you see "Filter", put nglayout.initialpaint.delay

                          Then just double click on the result that comes up and put 0 in

                          Edit; bug? With the about config thing there's not supposed to be an underscore... but for some reason it's showing up in the post
